Robinson was designated for assignment by the Angels on Monday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the second time this season Robinson was DFA'd to clear room on the roster for Cameron Maybin's (knee) return from the disabled list. Assuming he clears waivers again, Robinson will likely report back to Triple-A Salt Lake where he'll continue to serve as organizational depth.

Robinson went 1-for-2 with a run scored in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder has received two starts in as many days with the Angels taking on left-handers in back-to-back games. Robinson has been on the short-side of a platoon with Ben Revere ever since Cameron Maybin (knee) was placed on the disabled list. He should continue to see action against southpaws in the near future, but Revere is the outfielder who will provide the most value until Maybin returns.

Robinson was promoted by the Angels on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Cameron Maybin (knee) set to head to the disabled list, Robinson was called up to take his place on the roster. The outfielder could see some time in the lineup, especially with the Angels set to face southpaws Gio Gonzalez, Chris Sale and David Price over the next four days.

Robinson cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson was designated for assignment, and his relative lack of success in the big leagues over the past few years left other teams disinterested in his services while he was exposed to waivers. He'll return to Triple-A to continue to act as organizational depth.

Robinson was Friday prior to the game against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

In a corresponding move, the team activated Cameron Maybin (oblique) from the disabled list and moved Robinson in order to clear a spot. Moving forward, Robinson will provide organizational outfield depth if he accepts the assignment.

Robinson's contract was purchased from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson was hitting .289 in the minors prior to his callup, and given his vast major-league experience, he was a reasonable choice for the Angels to bring up with Mike Trout (thumb) and Cameron Maybin (side) on the shelf. Robinson is starting in center field for Wednesday's contest, and he could pick up a good number of innings until Maybin is back in action, after which he's likely move into a fourth outfielder role.

Robinson was reassigned to the Angels' minor-league camp Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson held down a reserve role in the outfield for the Angels for a good chunk of 2016, but delivered a lowly .257 on-base percentage in 111 plate appearances. With the team adding Ben Revere on a one-year deal in the offseason, Robinson never had a great chance of winning an Opening Day gig with the Angels, so he'll be forced to bide his time at Triple-A Salt Lake and wait for an injury to open up an opportunity.

Robinson signed a minor league contract with the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson was DFA'd earlier in November, but the Angels saw enough in his defensive versatility to bring him back into the organization. That being said, the 32-year-old will likely act as organizational depth until his bat translates to the major league level.

Robinson elected free agency on Wednesday instead of accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake.

EDGE Analysis

He received more playing time last season than his talents might warrant, but the Angels have already upgraded the outfield situation with the addition of Cameron Maybin, and more offensive upgrades could be forthcoming via free agency. Robinson could sign elsewhere on a minor league deal as a non-roster invitee to spring training.

Robinson was designated for assignment on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels needed to clear a spot for Andrew Bailey on the 40-man roster, and Robinson was the casualty. He will provide organizational outfield depth going forward.
